Lyrics

Tired of typecasting? Don’t come here. I’ve got it in excelsis.


For harps and contemplation, go upstairs, down here is where the action is.


Make one mistake, that’s it for life in the public imagination.


You get tired of one little misdemeanour being the basis of a reputation.


Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!) Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!)


Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!) I’ve got negative press up to my ****!


 


I’m not such a bad guy as they say, so don’t believe the hype.


I got lumbered with this dodgy rep so now I perform to type.


It’s true I like to have my fun, but, then again, who doesn’t?


That youthful prank in Eden? Just jiving the country cousins!                    


Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!) Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!)


Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!) I’ve got negative press up to my ****!


 


All this about me wearing red and black, well, that gets kinda boring.


Personally, I like beige or taupe but who’d know me if I came calling?


I had some kicks with that old cat Faust. Well, who could resist such a deal?


But since then every two-bit louse wants to sell me his soul for a meal.      


Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!) Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!)


Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!) I’ve got negative press up to my ****!


 


Before I go let’s clear some myths: I don’t breathe fire and my eyes ain’t strange.


I like a round of golf, a beer at night and I play the stock exchange.


Here’s a little message for all you Goths: there’s no metal music in hell.


Actually, we dig Andy Williams and some nice bossa nova as well.          


Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!) Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!)


Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!) I’ve got negative press up to my ****!


 


And what about old Mick ‘n’ Keef and co., flirting with my name?


Hell ain’t rehab for old soaks, you must be fit to play my games.


Well, that’s all folks, I got to go take the wife to the shopping mall.


Thanks for taking the time to chat. It’s been great talking to you all.          


Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!) Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!)


Negative press (I’ve got it up to my ****!) I’ve got negative press up to my ****!
